example number one of democratic congressman john barrow of georgia. here's a campaign clip that he ran last fall. again, democratic congressman. >> i'm john barrow, and long before i was born, my grandfather used this little smith & wesson here to help stop a lynching. and for as long as i can remember, my father always had this rifle real handy, just to keep us safe. that's why i support the second amendment. >> all right. again, democratic, right? and then on the day that the president unveiled -- again, i have to keep emphasizing this. it seems like they're trying to make this a democrat/republican issue. then there was the day, rowland, the president unveiled his 23 action points on guns, and barrow released a statement on that day that said, "i strongly disagree with proportions that would deny law-abiding citizens their second amendment rights." and then the liberal obama stop gun violence campaign ran this ad invoking newtown against democrat barrow. >> i'm john barrow. >> breaking news now -- >> there's been a shooting at a school. >> and long before i was born -- >> 20 childre
crowley and john king. in 2008, barack obama, hillary clinton were bitter enemies battling a tough primary season. now fast forward, they're doing this high-profile joint interview. how do you make of how their relationship has evolved? >> i think it evolves out of political necessity. it's a very powerful force in politics. and it is not the first time that rivals have ended up being friends sort of. >> are they friends? >> well, look, have they been to the white house for dinner? we're told not. >> see, i find it amazing. >> she owes him a lot and he owes them a lot. there was the bushes and the doles and the reagans, and they all didn't get along for a while. and then the political expediency, political necessity chimed in. do i think that they seem to have come up with a relationship that looks at least on the surface like a good one beyond just a good working relationship? it certainly looks like it. and let's remember, hillary clinton's been through a whole lot worse than getting defeated by president obama. so it wasn't that much to get over. and i think they seem as though they're
for that, so i completely agree with john. when it comes to telling the republican party what they ought to believe in, that's not something that members of the rnc can do, that's something that the candidates have to do to say, here's the values we want to articulate and the policies we stand for and it doesn't just consist of we're against what president obama says. >> shortening the primary calendar, how would that help? how would that work? >> they just came off a primary calendar which had a primary and it took romney a long time to become the actual nominee, to get some of the other guys off the stage. i think what they'd like to be able to do is consolidate around the candidate very quickly in the future so that they can focus their resources on that general election. of course, it always looks that way when you have the incumbent president on the other, and they may change the calendar some. we've been watching them right now in states across the country and look for opportunities to change the way electoral map is done and the way electoral votes are portioned and there are a lo
get any today or will they get any today? let's ask ambassador john bolton. ambassador, what do you expect to happen today? and if you were asking questions, where would you focus? >> the way i would do it would be to ask very specific questions. i would not give secretary clinton a chance to filibuster about broad policy issues and skate past her personal responsibility. so there are three phases to this: what happened before september 11, what happened on the day of the attack, and what happened later with the mohammed video story. so, for example, before the attack, i would ask were you aware of the request for enhanced security from embassy tripoli? were you ware of the attacks on the consolate compound in benghazi, attacks on the british ambassador, the red cross's decision to withdraw? if she says "yes" to that, why didn't she react to provide enhanced security? and if she wasn't aware of it, what kind of responsibility does that show about her personnel in a very sensitive area? i'd repeat that kind of approach with respect to what happened on the day of the attack itself an

from israel and from afghanistan, john mccain and kelly ayotte and other senators who just returned from visiting in egypt with morsi to discuss these very issues. the people of egypt and morsi in particular know that continuing a relationship with israel is key to u.s. foreign aid, that there needs to be a strong military commitment in israel specifically to protect the sinai because we know that weapons are being shipped up through the sinai to gaza to hamas. so, this is, as you say, a continuation of a previous agreement, it is going to continue and even the people of israel agree it's important to make sure that the egyptian military is strong, but egypt needs to continue its commitment to the camp david accord. >> sean: but senator johnson, the egyptian military now, some of the key leaders that we thought were more moderate, they're gone. morsi has gotten rid of them and now give them f-16 fighter jets and tanks, i've got to be honest, sometimes i wonder, this guy was a former terrorist in the muslim brotherhood. help me out, how does this-- how does this strategically work fo
